  • It has a variety of art, using different mediums. It wasn't stuffy like some art galleries I've been to that. It was bright and modern. It was also interesting to see the artists studios in the basement, and meet some of them. The Artisan restaurant on the ground floor is very nice, with good service and food. We went as a treat for lunch and they have a lunchtime menu, which makes it a bit cheaper.
  • Great paintings and sculptures which are all for sale. This means that the displays are constantly changing. Nice coffee shop on the top floor which looks out onto Byker.
  • Staff brilliant nice local art works and serves food it's worth a look ...
  • Every so often they run a "Supper club" in conjunction with an event to view a new collection. The supper club meal, in the cafĂ©, is great quality and excellent value, with friendly staff and service. You can view the art on display before or after the meal and it makes for a really relaxed evening. You have to book separately for the supper club.
  • Really nice art with a very tasty cafe attached to it. The art isn't stupidly priced either so don't be put off calling in to have a look around!
